Belfast, Friday

Post by supermo on Sun Nov 07, 2010 10:07 pm

I decided to resume my tour reports, even though I wonder why I bother sometimes (this meant leaving out a recent Amsterdam trip but fuck it you cunts wouldn't appreciate the culture). Hadn't been in Belfast for a few years, always have mixed feelings being there. On the one hand it's about as exciting as Falkirk on a Monday. On the other, it is interesting to track it's being dragged into the modern age, and not always for good. Belfast always had some fine Victorian buildings, like Glasgow or Manchester, but there's not many left. Parts of the centre are beginning to resemble so many other towns and cities, splattered with cheap-shit red and yellor brick buildings that don't look like they'll last 20 years.

Then there's the added frisson of this being Belfast, where both sides have some great craic. Def the nearest place to Glasgow in terms of being populated by strangers who'll talk to you all day long if you want. Had a very interesting conversation about Walter Smith, McCoist and Neil Lennon with a taxi driver of the bluenose persuasion (named Billy! Very Happy) We agreed Aberdeen were cunts.

Anyways, here is a certain bar, former employers to Gerry Adams and named after our halfwit admin:



It remains a fantastic place to visit. Apart from the Guinness (sadly no longer for me) you could spend an afternoon studying the glasswork and the wood carved ceiling. Here's a section of the glasswork near the entrance:



(The sign says "no football garments", so remember to leave your Stenny outfit at home if you ever visit, jaundice-face):



The "Norn Irn Supporters Club"....funny, I always thought Northern Ireland's colours were mainly green. Perhaps they ran out of paint?:



The thing about Belfast and Derry (for those of use who aren't from there), it is easy to forget how small these cities are and how close together are their various "communities". On Friday we dropped by one of the vibrant native communities of Belfast, always keen to offer a friendly welcome:



Footnote: Perhaps not surprisingly, NI has the lowest payment rate for the TV licence fee (second is the Western Isles, of course...) Snapped on Friday outside the BBC's Belfast studios are a crew of workshy cunts who think more of that money should be spent fattening up their already obscene final salary pensions....



Manchester and Bradford next week......and Las Vegas next month
Cool

Interesting report Mo, my brother was there on a stag night and had a hoot but its not for me. I'm not really a fan of cities TBH, I prefer somewhere a little more genteel Very Happy

I have family from Derry. It's more reserved and a bit more "small town", Bewlay, on both sides of the divide. The city walls are impressive and the Foyle is beautiful, but Derry doesn't do enough for visitors imo.

Plus they'd probably heard about your unreasonable behaviour before you arrived, you daft cunt geek

Yeh, I even dedicated my New York one to you in the passing hope that you would de-flounce and re-appear rather quicker than the nazi did, you twinkle-toed sentimentalist. To no avail Very Happy
